Is Pennsylvania delivering on the promise of quality, affordable health care for women?



Is Pennsylvania delivering on the promise of quality, affordable health care for women?
Unfortunately, the answer is no.


In today’s economy, families depend on both men and women to make ends meet. Women across PA are leading households and we’re doing everything we can to support our families, but the deck is stacked against them – especially when it comes to getting the health care our families need to lead healthy, prosperous lives.

The newly-released 2014 Women’s Health Report Card for PA underscores our reality: PA is failing when it comes to meeting women’s health needs, and there’s a lot more state can and should be doing to meet women’s health needs – especially for women of color.

In the report card, which ranks all 50 states on 30 measures of women’s health, including coverage, access to care, and health outcomes,PA was ranked only #22 and got a final grade of C+ -- PA only got a D grade for health care outcomes for women.
You can read the full report here.

Here's the good part -- you can make a difference.  It’s important that we let our elected officials know that PA is falling short and that they can change that.
